Like your stuff[edit]

Hey, just saying I noticed you. ;p Think I liked most on your userpage about leaving stuff at the last minute! Anyway, I'm also a NZer. With it seems something of an overlap in your on interests, while holding similar views. So I'll keeping quarter of an eye out... Mathmo 18:11, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Scholarly support[edit]

Would that be your own possible definition of scholarly support?--Tomtom9041 18:46, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi Ross, I have some citations for you regarding notable Plymouth Brethren members, please see that discussion page. Can the names go in the article now?Malick78 12:04, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Bible translations[edit]

Truthfully, most translations do not follow the original biblical text closely. This can be seen by taking a biblical passage word by word and seeing how each word is used through the rest of the original language in the bible. Even not going this far, compare three versions of the bible, then reconsider the statement "most translations follow . . . closely." The three versions will be largely different, showing that "most" cannot possibly "follow closely" -- pure statistical analysis, not my biased opinion. Each translatioin is a cultural interpretation to meet the needs of the community putting that translaion to use.

Further, even if the translations are "fairly close" or even "substantially close," one cannot make factual presumptions about the bible's intent through reading a translation. This is true for all literature. While, you are correct -- irony is not encyclopaedic material -- the irony here is indisputable. Biblical literalists believe the bible is the divine and perfect word of god, but instead of reading god's version (in all its perfection) they read a version translated and rewritten by fallible human beings. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 20:47, 12 May 2007 (UTC).

Rudolf Steiner's explanation of discrepancies[edit]

You have stated that "Rudolf (Steiner) is not really qualified in this area" regarding the discrepancies in the genealogies of Jesus. What do you mean when you say he is not qualified? What are the criteria for qualification? It is a fact that he gave explanation for this. Whether it is correct or not should be irrelevant for Wikipedia I thought.

Thank you for an answer.

Wynton Rufer Page[edit]

Why are you insistent on undoing my original research everytime, what I say in it is the opinion of a friend of mine who heard Dunga say that while attending the course (something which he did for over 5 years). Since you have been unable to provide me with an answer, I am taking the liberty of once again undoing your contribution and would ask you to please let the page remain this way.

LDS perspective on Noah[edit]

Plymouth Brethren - Notable Members[edit]

Added a better reference to Jim Elliot as I think your needing some moral support. Also added Dr. Bernardo! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Another berean (talkcontribs) 14:50, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
